This week I went to the grocery store a few times, as usual. To my surprise, but not really surprised I noticed the usual 10 pounds of potatoes is now being hawked as 8 pounds ????
The next thing I noticed is the peanut butter has gone from ten ounces to eight and the half gallon of orange juice is now 59 ounces. We are told by the great and powerful government that the price of food is not going up.
I don’t know about anyone else, but to me to decrease the size and keep the price the same is a price increase. I read an article that said the reason was consumers did not want the larger packages ????
I wish I had saved the link for that story. The people in business and the government think we are stupid, perhaps we are because I do not hear much about this size shrinkage of products we use everyday.
